PULLMAN – Washington State receiver Vince Mayle was named Second Team All-Pac-12, the conference announced Tuesday. Mayle tied for the national lead with 106 receptions and set the WSU single-season record with 1,483 receiving yards.
The redshirt senior led the Pac-12 with six 100-yard receiving games and was the only college football player this season with two games of more than 250 receiving yards. He was also a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award, which is given to the nation’s top receiver.
Quarterback Connor Halliday was named All-Pac-12 honorable mention after leading the country in passing yards per game with 430.3 and throwing for the second-most yards in the Pac-12 with 3,873.
